The beautiful Illuminated Bible happened to be on my husband’s Christmas list, and I’m so glad it was, because now I get to reap the benefit of getting to read and use it for my studies! The cover and each page is so artfully created - I love the illustrations and journaling pieces already in the Bible, and all the space left for us to add our own notes and journaling! The gold on each page is metallic and actually stands out on the page, plus there is a little of the gold print even on the pages without journaling illustrations, because the references at the top of the page, as well as the chapter numbers, and page numbers are in the same gold. Dana Tanamachi did a gorgeous job with all the illustrations, but I particularly love the full-page ones! My only concern is that I’m not sure the pages are thick enough for me to actually journal in without bleeding through, although since the Bible is already quite large I imagine thicker pages just couldn’t be a reality for this edition.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Crossway, but I wasn't required to write a positive review.
Thanks for reading about what I’m reading!
